The Quantitative Conceptual Site Model Approach: Maximizing the Utility of Your CSM

QCSM Short Course - Bordentown, NJ

In response to the State update on COVID-19, the course scheduled for March 17, 2020 has been postponed, and tentatively rescheduled for Wednesday, May 13, 2020

This half-day workshop is designed to take environmental professionals beyond the traditional qualitative Conceptual Site Model (CSM) by adding an overlay of quantitative information that sharpens decisions and provides documented support that can be important to an LSRP’s, or other environmental professional’s, practice.

The Quantitative Conceptual Model (QCSM) approach, which involves the merging of quantitative analysis results with the framework of a sound site conceptual model, provides a “functional” version of the CSM that can be used to guide investigations, assist in remedial design, and/or evaluate the effectiveness of a remedy, providing a well-documented, scientifically-based tool for sound decision making.

Instructors will present a detailed discussion of the QCSM approach, and will identify a series of quantitative analysis tools and techniques that can be applied in any project, ranging from simple calculations, to more complex analyses, including spatial data analysis methods, 3-D Data visualization techniques, and groundwater flow and contaminant transport analyses that can range from “back of the envelope” calculations to more complex computer models. Additionally, a series of practical applications and case studies will be presented, and attendees will receive copies of select spreadsheet calculators and modeling software (along with simple examples to work through independently) that can be utilized to add a quantitative component to their CSMs.
